Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper Paired with Copper Brushed Metallics

Today we have a sketch for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 635.


I love this sketch!  Here is the card I designed using the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Copper Brushed Metallic card stock.

CCMC #635 Gilded Autumn by Jo Anne Hewins

With these materials and sketch, the card practically put itself together.  Start with a card base of Thick Very Vanilla that measures 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.  

The first layer is cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, the same measurement of the front of the card.  I love the Mint Macaron background paper with the outlined leaves in copper.  Gorgeous!  The next layer is the Brushed Metallic card stock in copper that measures 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.  Run this through the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder.  Super gorgeous!  It just makes my heart leap!  The striped paper is cut 1/2 x 4.  It comes from the Gilded Autumn Specialty paper.  Add this strip so that it will stick out from the brushed copper.  The brushed copper butts up to the right side of the card in the center.

For the label, cut from Mint Macaron card stock using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  I wanted some shine for the words so the Stamparatus came to the rescue.

Adhere the saying, from Gather Together, to the Stamparatus.  Stamp on the label so that the saying is in the center in Early Espresso.  Now clean the stamp and ink it with Versamark.  Now cover with clear embossing powder and melt with the Heat Tool.  It's really prettier than this picture shows!  Add the label with dimensionals.

CCMC #635 Gilded Autumn Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside, the saying is Gather Together.  Stamp it in Early Espresso ink.  Add the leaf print along the bottom, 1 x 4 1/4.  Add a thin strip of the stripe paper.  Mine is tucked just under the leaf print.  It's cut at 1/2 x 4 1/4.

I think this card is so elegant.  What do you think?  I'm so glad you choose to spend a little time with me today.  I know your time is precious and I appreciate it.  If you need a demonstrator, I would love to help you.  Need catalogs?  Just let me know!
